Bulgur is ubiquitous in Middle Eastern cooking but also pairs deliciously with Asian seasonings. This simple side dish is perfect with beef, lamb or poultry. For variations, substitute toasted sesame seeds for the almonds, or carrot juice (it is surprisingly good and certainly nutritious) for orange juice.
2   oranges
2 teaspoons  canola oil
2 cloves  garlic, minced
2 tablespoons  minced fresh ginger
1 cup  bulgur, rinsed (see Ingredient note)
2 teaspoons  brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon  salt, or to taste
1/3 cup  slivered almonds
2/3 cup  chopped scallions
1 tablespoon  reduced-sodium soy sauce

Ingredient note
Fiber-rich bulgur—whole-wheat kernels that are precooked, dried and cracked—is sold in natural-foods stores and large markets.
Bulgur with Ginger & Orange Recipe at
Zest 1 orange; reserve the zest. Juice both oranges. If necessary, add enough water to the juice to measure 1 1/2 cups total.

Heat oil in a large heavy saucepan over medium-high heat. Add garlic and ginger; cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add bulgur and stir to coat. Add the orange juice, brown sugar and salt; bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to maintain a gentle simmer, cover and cook until the bulgur is tender and most of the liquid has been absorbed, 15 to 25 minutes.

Meanwhile, toast almonds in a small dry skillet over medium-low heat, stirring frequently, until light golden and fragrant, 2 to 3 minutes.

Add scallions, soy sauce and the reserved orange zest to the bulgur; mix gently and fluff with a fork. Serve sprinkled with the almonds.

This dish is very good hot or cold. Simple to make, its a very nice side dish for orange chicken or a satisfying snack by itself.
